I received my calendar today. Yea! Here is the tentative schedule:
April 3: Start 10 units Lu.pron and Dexa.methasone daily
April 7: Last BCP
April 10: Expect AF
April 11: Ultrasound (U/S) & bloodwork (BW)
April 12: Continue Lu.pron and Dex. Calendar says to stay on 10 units of Lu.pron, while my last fresh protocol reduced it to 5 units. I'll have to ask about the reasoning for that.-Happy half birthday to me and happy anniversary to my brother and SIL!
April 13-15: Start stim meds, 1 vial Men.opur in morning, 75u Gon.al F in evening. Continue Lu.pron and Dex. From what I remember I think my last fresh cycle started off with 150u of Gon.al F, but I'll need to check my old calendar when I can find it.-Happy birthday to Scout on the 13th!
April 16: U/S & BW, 1 vial Men.opur in morning, Gon.al F dosage determined based on results of U/S & BW, continue Lu.pron & Dex.
April 17: Continue same meds as day before.
April 18-22: U/S & BW, Men.opur & Gon.al F dosage determined based on results of U/S & BW, continue Lu.pron & Dex each day.
April 22: Tentative trigger.
April 24: Tentative egg retrieval.
April 27 or 29: Tentative embryo transfer.
From what I can tell, the only difference in this calendar from the first go round is no decrease to the Lu.pron and starting Gon.al F at half the dosage(?). Sure hope it does the trick. I am seriously considering buying a huge package of Pow.erAde from Costco when it goes on sale in April, just in case.
One piece of administrative business I wanted to mention. I had to set up the word verification again. I started getting spam. To be specific, one particular message about 10 times in one day. Sorry for the inconvenience, but please don't let it keep you from posting comments. I love em!
It is getting harder and harder to find interesting pictures to post. Only 5 more days after today. Today's photo journal theme is:
Here are some pictures of the dogs playing. Molly has about a 35 pound advantage on Scout. You might think this means Scout has courage. Some might call it stupidity. Funny thing is, she totally beats up on Molly and Molly is pretty gentle with her.
